I disagree that "too slick of a rail" is a problem. Are you saying it is too fast? Most seasoned skaters would prefer rails to be "slick" or "fast" so they can grind and slide faster and smoother. But if you want it to slide slower, take some sandpaper to it. Then when you're ready to go faster, wax it up. A year or so from now, you'll laugh at this email. It's all good though, we're all learning.
